Lyrbe (spelled Lyrba in the 1910 Catholic Encyclopedia) was a city and episcopal see in the Roman province of Pamphylia Prima and is now a titular see.[1]


It is only known by its coins and the mention made of it by Dionysius, Perieg. 858, Ptolemy, V, 5, S, and Hierocles.[2] It is identified with modern Asarkale.[1]

The Notitiae episcopatuum mention Lyrba as an episcopal see, suffragan of the archbishopric of Side, up to the 12th and 13th centuries. Two of its bishops are known: Caius, who attend the First Council of Constantinople in 381, and Taurianus at the First Council of Ephesus in 431 (Le Quien, Oriens christianus, I, 1009); Zeuxius was not Bishop of Lyrba, as Le Quien states, but of Syedra.[2]
